Valentine’s Day trees are the newest holiday trend you’ll love

There’s no hard and fast rule about when to take down your Christmas tree. Some people can’t wait to de-Christmas their home and take the tree and lights down on Dec. 26, while others may wait until after New Year’s … or even later. However, if you need a justification for keeping up your tree through February, you’re going to love this year’s latest holiday trend: Valentine’s Day trees!

Rather than packing up the Christmas tree after the December holidays are over, this new trend calls for leaving it up and redecorating it in pink heart and love-themed decorations to celebrate Feb. 14. You can even leave any red ornaments up, and stash your Valentine’s Day gifts for loved ones underneath it.

Check out how Instagram user @jasminenicole08 reimagined her green Christmas tree as a Valentine’s Day tree with some heart-shaped and love-themed Valentine’s Day decorations.

Red and pink ornaments also look great with a white-colored artificial tree, as seen in the below Instagram post from @the_real_mzarizona. How great is the “Love” tree topper?

Or if you don’t want to go out and buy Valentine’s Day-specific ornaments, you could also decorate your tree with artificial flowers or roses and a simple bow as the topper for the tree, like in Instagram user @nicole_runsondunkin’s photo:

For those who really want to go all out and don’t mind owning more than one tree, you might consider investing in a separate red or hot-pink-colored tree. Pink, red, white and even purple holiday trees can be found on shopping sites like Wayfair, Santa’s Quarters and (As it turns out, you can get Christmas trees in many different colors to fit any theme you want, from your favorite football team and Pikachu to the American flag and rainbows).

What do you think of this Valentine’s Day tree trend? Will you join it and keep your home festively decorated a few weeks longer?
